(May 14, 2013)--Department of Defense Civilian Personnel Advisory Service employees were in Central Texas Tuesday, talking to local businesses in an effort to complete a federal wage system survey.
They hope to survey more than a hundred businesses with more than fifty employees in Bell, Coryell, and McLennan Counties.
Since May 7, data collectors have been meeting with the businesses on the list to collect information that will help shape a new pay schedule goes into effect on July 7.
Spokesman Paul Bruton said the data from the survey will help the government set rates that approximate local prevailing wages.
Hospitals, manufacturing companies, wholesale trade companies, transportation companies, communication companies, and public utility entities are some of the businesses on the list.
A survey summary will be given to the participants at the end of the survey.
"The summary will not include names of other businesses, but will provide wage information for different benchmark positions," Bruton said.
The data will be collected for the survey through May 17.
